Dennis Cronk's 1954 New Yorker

The New Yorker website members have been very helpful in providing me information for restoring and finding parts the last several months. I wanted them to see how it has progressed in the last 5 months with their help I purchased it in April from a friend (91 yrs old) who was the original owner in Hollywood, Fl. I restored the paint to the original carnary yellow and sea Island green. I live in Miami a few blocks from "Little Havana" cuban neighborhood. It has lots of Ma & Pa shops that do auto painting and uphostery work. I had lot of fun working with them. The only problem is I do not speak spanish. Most of the big old 50's cars are still in daily use in Cuba. They make or repair most of the parts on the island. A cuban uphostery shop recovered the seats in Emerald Green leather and door panels in green/cream leather and fawn carpet. I got the leather hide, wide whitewall tires, chrome trim, ect. thru E-bay sellers. The next project is engine cleaning & painting, fixing radiator and power steering leaks. Maybe you could provide photos and this update to our members. I know most of them have the 70's new yorkers and enjoy them.

I am in process of restoring. If anyone knows anyone that has parts, please let me know. Thanks
